Inburgeringexamen for indefinite resident permit

hi all.
I plan to apply for an indefinite resident permit this Sep (I will have lived 5 years without a gap as a highly educated worker, kennismigrant). The English version of IND.nk says that I need to pass the civic integration course (at A2 level). The Dutch version says that I need the inburgeringexam. I am quite confused which one I really need???
Having read some topics in this forum, I got even more confused between: civic integration course, inburgeringexam and NT2. Can anyone explain to me the differences? What is the estimated time to get the inburgeringexam? (my Dutch knowledge: finished the 'absolute beginners course' in the language institute, university of Amsterdam).

Thanks.

My answer is not definitive, but from what I know about the process, either of the exams (Inburgering or NT2 Level 2) are sufficient for a permanent residence. These are also sufficient for applying for a Dutch passort (Naturalization)
